Abstrakty : Thirty-seven trilobite taxa from the Upper Cambrian of the Holy Cross Mountains are described; eighteen are noted for the first time in Poland. Eleven of the previously recognised species are considered to be junior synonyms. Restorations of the exoskeleton for Aphelaspis rara (ORŁOWSKI), Leptoplastides irae (ORŁOWSKI), Peltura protopeltorum ORŁOWSKI and Trilobagnostus rudis (Salter) are provided. Large morphological variation in cephala of Parabolina (Neoparabolina) frequens (BARRANDE), observed in the literature and exemplified by the analysed material indicates that the hitherto recognised subspecies, P.(N.) frequens argentina (KAYSER) and P. (N.) frequens finmarchia (NIKOLAISEN & HENNINGSMOEN), represent one taxon. Parabolina (Neoparabolina?) lapponica WESTERGARD is most probably related to Parabolina (Neoparabolina) frequens (BARRANDE). Beltella LAKE is considered a junior synonym of Leptoplastides RAW, and the genus belongs to the Pelturinae rather than the Oleninae
